What does censuring a board member mean?

ANSWER: Though AASB does not have a specific policy regarding censure in our model manual, it is mentioned in the policy 9011 as an option for boards should they feel the need to do so.

Boards that abide by Robert’s Rules of Order can use “censure” at any time to call out inappropriate board member behavior if the Board votes to do so. In essence, it is a form of public humiliation. It is designed to separate and identify the board members’ actions or words as not in alignment with the board’s policies or modes of decorum.
